BEWAKOOFIYAAN It is always worth noting the songs composed by Raghu Dixit as they mostly revolve around guitar. Unfortunately, the new album has not been up to expectations but the title song of Bewakoofiyaan is still good enough to play on guitar.

Bewakoofiyaan is in the key of E major scale. Most of the chords are easy with only 2 minor barre chords. Check it out:

E F#m A B G#m

I would love to suggest you a specific strumming pattern but there really isn’t any one that would fit the whole song. Most of it can be played with just continuous DOWN strokes. I encourage you to improvise and add more strokes wherever you feel like. Play your own version! 🙂

Here’s the song:


(E) / (F#) / (A) / (B) [just root notes]
(E5) / (F#5) / (A5) / (B5) [played every beat]
(E5) / (F#5) / (A5) / (B5) [background music starts]
